Some of my corn plants.

Yeah I know its kinda small compared to the 100 acre+ farmer, but I though to try it anyways.

All are Argent White Hybrids




My corn is nearly 6ft tall and is starting to tassel. I have only about 3 ears on the plants indicated by the silk that comes out of them. My question is while I'm confident that they will get pollinated [I hope]; I have tried to take some of the tassel and hand pollinate them. I did notice that after doing so some of the silk now has this deep red color as opposed to the white silk.

Is this anything to be worried about or does it just happen that way?

I will post follow up pics soon.
